Students of all levels and disciplines are welcome to discuss their work one-on-one with CWAC Writing Advisers. Our sessions are characterized by peer-to-peer dialogue, inspired by the model of Burke’s Parlor.

Through collaborative engagement, Writing Advisers guide peers to express ideas clearly and to revise their own papers with an eye toward audience and purpose. To that end, writers should bring their assignments, texts, and related material. Writers visit CWAC to brainstorm ideas, to revise drafts, or to work on specific aspects of writing, such as grammar, citation, thesis development, organization, or research methods. Discussions involve any type of writing, including a poem, a science lab report, an argument-driven research paper, or a scholarship application letter.
